Preview: Harry Keeble Quartet live streaming from the Jazz Co-op (Jan. 31)

The Globe's doors are currently closed to audiences, but, thanks to Newcastle Jazz Co-op's volunteer staff, high quality audio-visual live stream presentations are helping keep both musicians and the venue afloat. On Sunday evening (Jan. 31) tenor saxophonist Harry Keeble will be live streaming from the Co-op's Railway Street HQ.

Harry, from the coastal town of Hastings, studied at Leeds College of Music (now Leeds Conservatoire) and it was there he met Abbie Finn. Harry and drummer Abbie hit it off, and now, as graduates, continue to gig together. Abbie first came to the attention of BSH as a promising talent at the annual Great North Big Band Jazz Festival and the Darlington Jazz Festival. Sitting in at Newcastle Jazz Cafe's competitive jam sessions enabled Abbie to make contacts with other musicians and, in time, Harry turned up (bringing something of Brecker, Rollins and Trane to the party) at the fortnightly Pink Lane sessions. Harry and Abbie made a big impression, more than holding their own, making many friends along the way. 
 
Fast forward to 2021...there is an Abbie Finn Trio recording to promote (not easy with few, if any, gigs in the offing!), scant teaching opportunities, a few rehearsal sessions, and now, on the last day of January, the Harry Keeble Quartet is to live stream a gig to a worldwide audience. Harry's quartet is what you'd call 'A-list'. Harry, Abbie and two of Tyneside's most in-demand musicians leading their own outfits and/or touring with others - Mark Williams, guitar, and bassist Andy Champion. Hand-pick a quartet, you'd be hard-pressed to find four more accomplished musicians. To register for Sunday's live stream (£7.50 minimum) visit: www.jazzcoop. Please sign up in good time, don't leave it until the last minute, it's an eight o'clock start.
